Wine lovers rejoice! New tasting rooms coming to Downtown Spokane

Spokane has always been a wine lovers dream with several wineries represented in the city. But as the popularity of Washington wines grows, so does the opportunities to try and buy some of the best the state has to offer. Here is what is new for local wine tasting rooms-

Nodland Cellars leaves Downtown, Terra Blanca quickly opens at their storefront.

Nodland Cellars a Spokane based winery had a short lived wine tasting room on the ground floor of the Chronicle Building at 926 W. Sprague. However Nodland has decided to focus more on the wine and less on the retailing of the wines in large amounts. Nodland is still in business but will now continue on as a members only winery in the same site where they're wines are produced at 11616 E. Montgomery Dr. #69 in Spokane Valley.

But have no fear, wines will continue to pour in the Downtown space. Immediately after Nodland Cellars vacated the storefront the space transitioned into a new tasting room for Terra Blanca Winery.
Terra Blanca Winery is wine producer from Benton City,Wa , nearby the Tri-Cities . The new Spokane space for Terra Blanca Winery is open Wed. , Thurs. and Sat. noon-7 , Friday noon- 9:30 and Sun. noon- 5:00 pm
